Explosives used to demolish truss

Crews used explosives to remove the Key Bridge truss from the Dali cargo ship, but not all of it was removed. Safety protocols were followed during the demolition, where crew members remained on board to keep the ship operational. A sizable part of the steel truss remained on the ship, as no explosives were placed there due to flammable materials nearby. The plan is to remove that part of the truss once the ship is docked. The timeline to reopen the channel remains on track. Federal funding is being sought to rebuild the bridge, with Maryland currently responsible for 10% of the cost. Pelosi praised Maryland’s response to the collapse.
